Time Out Dubai: The only Dubai breakfast inspiration you need this weekend
Video by The Entertainer: Discover Chef Hari's most popular recipe: The Avocado toast!
The world was obsessed with coffee art and unicorn shakes when a new trend in food took Instagram by a storm. Enter avocado art. The beautiful avocado art creations by artists like @gakugakugakugakugaku1 and Daniele Barresi have made it to articles by Teen Vogue and Cosmopolitan magazines. Now, Chef Hari Budhathoki of Skye and Walker at the Marriott Executive Apartments Dubai Creek, joins the list of avocado art creators with his own inspiring carvings. Skye & Walker is an urban sustainable neighborhood eatery for globetrotters & savvy foodies in the heart of the "old" Dubai.
Chef Hari’s creations include avocado carved like a rose; thin avocado shavings are delicately carved and placed in a swirl to resemble a rose, which is then garnished with rosemary sprigs, water cress leaves, cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. He even pours more of his heart into one of Skye and Walker’s fastest selling menu items – the Avocado Toast, by serving it with heart-shaped carved avocado pieces drizzled with cracked black pepper and sea salt. “The world of food has limitless possibilities where a simple avocado can be transformed into a beautiful piece of art. I found my avocado art creations the perfect way to showcase my passion for healthy and nutritious food that we at Skye and Walker create.”, says Chef Hari.
Skye and Walker was always an advocate of the humble and nutritious avocado; so much so, that it has not one, not two, but three versions of the famed Avocado Toast on its menu – one where the 7 grain bread and smashed avocado are topped with curry spices, sea salt, chili flakes and arugula; another where the topping includes smoked salmon, red onion, shaved radish and dill; and the third avocado toast where the toppings feature poached egg, sundried tomato, feta and baby cress leaves.
Chef and his team create guilt free nutritious dishes including vegan, raw & gluten free choices that are inspired by fresh, local ingredients, sourced through a few handpicked partners. Not just that, Skye & Walker adheres to its sustainability ethos even in its interiors featuring reclaimed, recycled & eco-friendly materials. The natural materials used in flooring, furniture & decor are a reflection of our locally sourced eats.
